  1. DragEN- A DragSail for Small Spacecraft

    SBC: Saber Astronautics, LLC            Topic: Z8

    Saber Astronautics has the long term vision that for every satellite launched to LEO, two objects (the main payload and a piece of existing space debris) should be brought back to Earth. The development of a cheap, compact, re-deployable drag sail or electrodynamic tether is a critical enabler to this vision, allowing for the controlled deorbit, rendezvous and docking and ultimate re-entry of both ...

  2. An Additively Manufactured, Leak-Proof NTO Swivel

    SBC: ASRC Federal Astronautics, LLC            Topic: Z3

    ASRC Federal Astronautics, LLC (AFA) is pleased to present this proposal for the demonstration of feasibility of an additively manufactured, highly dexterous mechanism that enables the safe, leak-free transfer of the storable oxidizer (nitrogen tetroxide, NTO, or mixed oxides of nitrogen, MON). Our Additively manufactured Dexterous Leak-proof Interface (ADLI) is a radically simple design that uses ...

  3. Venus Imaging Camera

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: S4

    The ability to image in harsh environments such as Venus is of interest and use including for missions to the surface of Venus. Today overwhelmingly almost all video cameras are based on silicon charge coupled devices (CCDs); however CCDs are not suited for and not capable of functioning at high/extreme temperature environments such as surface and atmosphere of Venus. Vidicons and similar types of ...

  4. Deep Learning Based Real-Time Engine Prognostics and Health Management (DL-RTEPHM)

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    Testing and verifying rocket engines requires the careful placement, calibration, and analysis of dozens of sensors to measure important system characteristics such as temperature, density, flow, vibration, etc.Due to the volume and complexity of the raw outputs of these sensors, most are not monitored live and require extensive amounts of time from engineers to analyze and verify tests in an offl ...

  5. Bendable Electrodynamic Dust Shields

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: Z13

    Hedgefog Research Inc. (HFR) proposes to develop new, thin-film, Bendable Electrodynamic Dust Shields (BEDS) that allow for continuous dynamic bending over compound curvatures such as the joint regions of a spacesuit, e.g., ankles, knees, elbows, etc. The BEDS technology is based on a combination of customized rigid and bendable plastic sheet forms with thin film electrode arrays fabricated from c ...

  7. High Performance Pump-fed Lunar Transfer Stage for Small Launchers

    SBC: Flight Works, Inc.            Topic: Z8

    Flight Works is proposing to expand its micropump-fed propulsion technology to the development and demonstration of a low cost, compact, high performance lunar transfer stage designed for small launchers like Rocket Labrsquo;s Electron and Virgin Orbitrsquo;s Launcher One. With a total wet mass around 230 kg, the transfer stage is designed to provide high-thrust, high delta-V capabilities of over ...

  8. Quantum Clock Synchronization

    SBC: Speqtral Quantum Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H9

    Quantum clock synchronization (QCS) uses quantum communications to accurately and securely transfer time over long distances. Using this new technology with SQTrsquo;s heritage entangled photon sources, time transfer over long distances is possible within picosecond level accuracy. And because QCS utilizes the inherent security with entangled photons, this time transfer signal cannot be spoofed. U ...

  9. Bi-Fold Fan DragSail with Surface Area Modulation Capability

    SBC: Nexolve Holding Company, LLC            Topic: Z8

    A new passive reentry system is proposed for deorbiting spacecraft from low earth orbit (LEO).nbsp; The proposed DragSail system is based upon a restowable and redeployable concept that allows for increase or decrease of surface area thus modulating aerodynamic drag of the system.nbsp; Modulation of the drag will allow the system to guide small spacecraft to specific locations at the Von Karman al ...

  10. Magsails for Spacecraft Deorbit

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: Z8

    The magnetic sail, or magsail, is a new technology that can be used for deorbiting spacecraft. In the magsail deorbiting system, a loop of aluminum or copper wire is deployed at the end of life of an Earth orbiting spacecraft, and energized with an electric current, producing a magnetic field. The magnetic field forces the wire into a circular loop, and creates a small magnetosphere around the spa ...
